Premium Burgers made to order
Description of franchise system
Welcome to the best tasting burger in Canada!
We are proud to be Canada’s only home-grown hamburger chain and we are currently operating more than 300 locations.
Harvey's Restaurant was founded in 1959 with the basic principle of serving only freshly grilled and custom garnished burgers. Our goal is to make each and every burger we serve a "beautiful thing" for our customers.
As quality is most important to us, our burgers aren’t as fast as others, but taking our time to create best tasting burgers is exactly what makes them better. And our customers appreciate this.
Every burger is freshly garnished in front of the guest, who chooses what exactly and how much he or her wants for his or her burger from our wide selection of toppings. This makes every burger a special, customized experience.
Over the past years, we have established a strong brand recognition and reputation as Canada’s best tasting burger chain. This provides a strong foundation and perfect conditions for further expansion of our company.
Today, we are part of Cara Operations Limited. Cara Operations Limited is one of Canada’s largest branded restaurant companies with over 1.5 billion in annual sales. Harvey's Restaurant takes advantage of Cara's scale in Marketing, Product Development, Purchasing, Real Estate, and Information Technology.
Our support starts at the first crucial point: site
selection. Our in-house real estate department will conduct demographic
analytics for you to ensure that you are in the right location.
We also have strong relationships with the major landlords and real estate developers that will help to negotiate a good rental price for you.
Of course, we will also train you. We have designed a ten weeks program which is the industry standard in equipping franchisees to successfully and confidently operate their business.
Our training covers all aspects of the restaurant business from technical details to the big picture of managing the entire business and leading a team. Our course is a combination of extensive in-restaurant hands on training and attending leadership classes.
As an Harvey's Restaurant franchisee, you'll profit from our marketing fund which provides brand building support with advertising, promotions, marketing programs for radio, TV, and print and in-store merchandising materials. This helps grow your sales.
With Harvey's you have a strong, experienced partner right at your side. No matter what problem might occur on your way, we'll guide you through the rough times.
Stop worrying and start working for yourself. Together, we can build something great.
